Unless you live in NC, this is the price you should be comparing against, assuming you can get the $1k loyalty rebate:

OTD is relative only to your area. What is your negotiated price, before taxes, trade and fees, but inclusive of rebates and destination charge?

You should quote the poster that you're the question to. At the very least, address them by screen name.

I appreciate everyone being willing to share their experiences as it's very helpful to people who are out shopping. As a point of simplification and enhancement, it's completely irrelevant to post OTD pricing in a forum like this were there are going to be soooo many different tax and registration costs. It would be most helpful for everyone to post their negotiated prices BEFORE taxes/fees, or at the very least before taxes, and then whether that price was for a purchase/finance transaction or a lease transaction as the dealers will often have different price offerings based on the financial support from Acura at the time. The pre-tax negotiated purchase price is going to be the only thing that most of us have in common and will go a long way to helping us avoid a whole bunch of unnecessary confusion and excess information.

2019 Base for $500 off MSRP

Went through USAA Car Buying Service (TrueCar) for my 2019 Base FWD RDX last month. Since we only have one Acura dealer here in San Antonio, they don't deal much. The two dealers in Austin didn't have any base models in stock. MSRP was $38,695 including the +$400 for the Performance Red paint. Gunn is a "one price for all" dealer and had it listed for $38,195 on their website tagged on the car. They also give you an accessory allowance of $500-$600 (don't recall exactly), which i used to tint the front windows, get all weather floor mats and the cargo cover. Wish I could've saved more....but overall happy with my purchase and service at dealer.. Originally had been pricing Honda CR-Vs. The CR-V AWD Touring models were over $35K...just made since to get the much nicer Acura from only a few thousand more.

Agree with everything you wrote, and would like to add that when there is a TRADE-IN on the deal, it makes the numbers even harder to compare for a different shopper. The dealer can give you a very low price on the new vehicle, and cover their "loss" by also giving you a low price on your trade. This happens more than most folks realize. So comparing a low price for the vehicle "before" fees, tax, etc may be very hard unless it is stated that there was not a trade in.

Hey I'm new to the forum. I'm thinking about pulling the trigger in the next few weeks on an A-Spec. Judging by the prices posted here recently am I to assume that 45k OTD is reasonable?

In my case I was only able to get OTD prices from a couple of dealers. When I asked for a breakdown they said it should be the only number that matters.

Truth is I'm finding it impossible to get a decent price in my area. If I mention the pricing that some of you have gotten they say "Show us an actual quote signed by a manager and we'll try to match it." But of course I can't do that. I'm not sure what to do, I refuse to pay the higher price when I know the price could be so much lower... I'm stuck.

It seems like either they aren't respecting you, or you come across as someone who's just price shopping and not really interested in purchasing.

Want to make an offer

Good afternoon everyone! I live in Ontario and I am interested in the Platinum Elite however there is not a lot of quotes posted on here. Can anyone who purchased from Ontario please post the on the road prices, also any regrets buying the 1st year model? I am in love with this model after test driving it and it was number 14 of the cars I drove so pretty impressed by it. Thank you!

What part of Florida are you in? There were a few people who got pretty good deals in Jacksonville but that was late last year. Not sure if those deals are still available considering how well the RDX is selling.

​​​​​​I would suggest you write to as many dealerships as you are willing to drive to. State that you are ready to buy now and will purchase from a dealership that has best price and you don't mind driving far to pick up.

state your location and occupation. Type up the letter and sign it like a formal letter. And here comes the best part... Fax it. Yes. Fax it. No emails.

You might find that the dealership further away from you will give you a deal since they got nothing to loose. They are not competing locally and will take a deal that they wouldn't otherwise get anyways.

Try your luck that way. You got nothing to lose. Obviously the timing matters, end of month might score your a dealer needing to meet his bonus quota or wait til July when the business is slow

Thanks, I appreciate the help. But I'll have to look in my 90s box for my old fax machine.

LoL. I know how silly it sounds. the fax part actually works cause all of this indicates you are serious vs just finishing over the internet. I watched my friend score a deal of lifetime on a BMW this way.

with eFax.

Working on the following deal for a '19 RDX FWD w/ TECH Package:

$36,999 for the RDX (MSRP is $40600) (+tax, destination, dealer fee)
Includes maintenance for 5 years (oil change, tire rotation, cabin filter)

What do you guys think? $3,600 off MSRP on the car, plus about $1,000 value on the maintenance (I drive about 17,000 mi/yr).

Its a good deal, but I would rather get another $1000 off by skiping maintance Package. Its not worth $1000 of the things you mentioned.

It actually is...
85,000 miles over 5 years (17,000/yr) = 13 oil changes/tire rotations (one every 6500 miles)
13 X $60 ($30 oil change, $30 rotation) = $780
cabin filter $40 X 5 (1 per year) = $200.
$980 total (not including tax + shop fees).

1. you might be getting 7500 miles between oil changes, which is 11-12 oil changes and rotations. Actually, before you get to 85k miles you will need new tires, so you can subtract one rotation
2. Cabin filter is a easy DIY and filter cost $20. And it only needs to be changed about every 30k miles or every 2 years unless you drive in very dusty environment. So you only need 2-3 cabin filters in 5 years.
3. Even with all the things you mentioned you are still under $1000. Where are the savings??
4. Not pre-paying for maintance gives you more options in case you want to sell the car, or its totaled and etc. even if package is “transferable ” to a new owner, you will not get all your money back

The maintenance is INCLUDED - I wouldn't be paying for it. One of the dealers offers that when you buy a car from them so i'm getting another to match that. That's my point - just saying it's about $1,000 value to me.I know the filter is easy DIY but still included so why not. Even at $700 value, still a value to me as it's one less thing to pay for.

You pay $30 for tire rotations? Do you have Discount Tire stores in your area? They do rotations for free, even if you were never a customer of theirs. They do this to try and make you one when you eventually need replacements.

The folks that came to JAX to buy their RDX's came at my invitation. I know the Acura dealer well and he has helped several folks on this forum that were willing to drive to JAX buy their vehicles.

Yep - $30 is average price here and what dealer charges. No Discount Tire store around me...

I see, if included its good. You can still ask if they remove this package how much you can save.

I'd rather just have it included personally...and it's not really a "package", just a "bonus" that I negotiated and told them I wanted to be included in the deal.

thats good. I also dont think they will take off $1000 by removing the package. But if I was given a choice: $1000 or the package you mentioned, I’d keep $1000.

Agreed. The pre-paid maintenance is something I often seek when negotiating as well. (but usually when we have come to a stand still, and they wont come down any further on the price) It costs the dealer far less than the benefit in $s to the buyer. The convenience of having it included makes it a benefit to me. Yes, I use Discount Tire for free rotations.

It's similar to when a restaurant screws up your food order and they offer a free desert to make up for it. The desert costs them far less then it would cost the diner to purchase it. A win/win.

What's the story these days with Break-in Period? Are we still supposed to NOT drive a brand new car a long distance at a constant speed? If so, how does someone buy a new car out of town or out of state and drive all the way home on a freeway?

I've always taken that with a grain of salt because I've actually never heard a cogent explanation of it from anyone. It may be true or a complete myth but I've never challenged it, personally. I'm not hard on a car, in general, but I always try to take it easy the first couple thousand miles.

I've pretty much decided on an Advance in White Diamond Pearl with Espresso or Parchment. I'll start calling / visiting dealers this week for prices. If it makes everybody feel better, I'll quote "OTD" prices, including 8.625% sales tax. Should be about 4 grand right there.

So, then... is it okay to drive home at a fairly constant speed on the freeway for several hundred miles with a brand new "just purchased" car? or ???

Get a quote from the JAX dealer and present it to your local dealer. Ask them match it or tell them you will go to JAX to buy it. Now you have no need to worry about the freeway driving, which I think you are over thinking.
